THE RUNDOWN ‘Plenty of drugs’ near Old Hull



Online posts pose risk for athletes

Monday afternoon an unknown woman approached a patrolling officer in the area of Old Hull Road to talk with him about an “ongoing drug issue” at the Knollwood Manor apartment complex on Old Hull Road, according to a report from the Athens-Clarke County Police Department. The report then stated the “concerned citizen” handed the officer “a small quantity of crack cocaine that she found near her residence.” “We definitely have plenty of drugs here,” she told the officer. The officer stated he intended to use this information for an “inderdiction detail that was in the planning stages at the time of this report.”

Field prep begins for football Grounds team trims hedges, looks toward Sept. ROBBIE OTTLEY The Red & Black Kenny Pauley’s job is as exciting as watching grass grow. And according to him, that’s pretty exciting. As the Athletic Association’s director of athletic turf grounds, Pauley oversees 30-plus acres of landscaping, beds and the various plants in them — and, yes, grass. His field between the hedges, which his staff also maintains, sees a national audience on football Saturdays. Preparing Sanford Stadium starts months before Georgia takes the field. Over the summer, the grounds crew has the opportunity to set the fields up for the rush of events in the fall. That means the crew is spending these dog days maintaining the fields, and though they work fewer hours in the summer, they’re likely

working more days to prepare the turf. “Grass don’t stop growing,” Pauley said. “My biggest thing was when everybody got furloughed; well, the grass doesn’t furlough.” The week of gameday is a particular crunch. The previous Tuesday, the crew prepares the field to be painted, a process that begins Thursday and continues into Friday. On Saturday, the crew arrives five hours before the game, distributing programs, setting up official tailgates, and preparing the field. See FIELD, Page 12

The limelight can be as scalding as it is rewarding. Student-athletes learn this lesson early, learning to find the balance between nearnational recognition and intense scrutiny — and both can be rapidly magnified under the global reach that social media provides. “You’re seeing it in all levels of life, workplaces even — it’s not something out of the ordinary,” said Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity. “It’s like sending an email — once you press send, you can’t get it back.” The dangers social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter pose to studentathletes came into focus last week, with the case of Georgia outside linebacker Cornelius Washington. Washington, in a moment of frustration, posted an inflammatory message to fair weather Georgia fans. The response prompted an internet debate on the role of athletes and what responsibility they owe to their Universities — and it also reminded sports fans that the Internet is a double-edged sword, one that can divide as surely as it unites.

Janine Duncan, campus planning coordinator with the Grounds Department, said the damage to the marble marker could reach $2,500. EVAN STICHLER/Staff

Athens is on in three, two, one. Just months after shooting scenes for Justin Timberlake and Clint Eastwood’s new movie “Trouble with a Curve,” Athens will be the location of another new film, “The Spectacular Now.” The film, based on the book of the same name, follows an impulsive high school student named Sutter Keely. After being dumped by his popular girlfriend, Keely, played by "Project X" actor Miles Teller, begins dating a social outcast named Aimee Finicky. Playing the role of Finicky will be Shailene Woodley, who has also had roles in “The Descendants” and “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.” Also appearing in the movie as Keely’s ex-girlfriend is “21 Jump Street“ and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” actress Brie Larson. The film is still in pre-production, and shooting is scheduled for the end of July.

The recent influx of films is making residents wonder if more movies are coming to Athens. “There are a lot of interesting things to do in Athens,” said Athens resident Spencer Suddeth. “I would love to see more movies come to town.” According to the Athens-Clarke County website, over a dozen films and movies have been shot in or around the Athens area. But of those films, over half have been released since 1996. If “The Spectacular Now” and “Trouble with a Curve” do well, however, it could mean more movies for the Athens area. — Kelly Whitmire

Univ. students not interested in ‘spice’ BY KELLY WHITMIRE The Red & Black In May 2012, Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law SB 370, which reclassifies all forms of synthetic marijuana as Schedule I drugs, citing increased violence, bodily harm and even death. The law now puts synthetic marijuana into the same classification as other illegal drugs. One of the most commonly used drugs among college students is marijuana. Yet due to the legal status of the drug, students have began to use forms of synthetic marijuana, which until recently

was a legal alternative. According to the Georgia State Board of Pharmacy, “there exists an imminent peril to the public health and welfare with regard to the abuse of these compounds.” Over the last few years synthetic marijuana, commonly labeled spice or incense, had been used by students looking for a legal high but can now pose very real legal problems. “Anything that’s deemed illegal, if you participate in that, you run the risk of being dealt with and criminally prosecuted,” said University Police Department

Administrative Lieutenant Eric Dellinger. “There are some health risk associated with that.” While the state and police departments are taking a hardline stance against the substances, students seem less excited about the substance. While once popular, some feel the substance has lost its legal advantage over marijuana since the ban. “It’s silly,” said Alex Brown, a senior majoring in anthropology. “The only reason I’ve heard of people using spice is to pass a drug test. If it’s illegal, there is no reason to use it.”

While the synthetic marijuana poses risks, it was used as a way to socially smoke without the risk of being arrested or failing a drug test. But even students who have tried the substance don’t recommend it. “There’s no reason not to just smoke regular weed,” said junior Mark Bradley. “It makes you dizzy and paranoid, and just makes your heart race.” And in addition to the legal aspect, synthetic marijuana can have major effects on the human body.

A media release sent by the Athens-Clarke County police department said that “According to Poison Center documents, users of synthetic cannabinoids can experience debilitating side effects and symptoms such as, but are not limited to, altered mental status, lethargy, short-term coma, seizures, and psychosis.”

Georgia’s recent heat wave has not been a major issue for new students and parents visiting the University campus for freshman orientation sessions. “We really haven’t had any kind of issue with anybody having heat exhaustion or fainting, so we’ve been fortunate. People are being selfaware and responsible for themselves and for their hydration,” said orientation director Milly Gorman. Most orientation activities take place indoors and the buses used for orientation are air-conditioned. “It’s not a big deal during the day because we’re in the [Zell B. Miller Learning Center] and Tate and all of the meetings are indoors," said Erik Lee, a junior from Roswell and an orientation leader this summer. In addition, students can choose an air-conditioned version of the campus tour, which takes place at the mural of North Campus on the third floor in the Tate Center. “We’ll do a pretend walking tour of North Campus. It’s pretty much the same exact thing minus actually going though North Campus,” Lee

said. The complaints are few. But some students’ only complaints seem to be during the walk to and from Brumby Hall, where students stay for orientation. “From a parent standpoint, it was fine,” said Debbie Rosenthal, mother of an incoming freshman. “And we’re Southerners so we’re used to it.” — Megan Deese

PAWS to improve in residence halls Incoming Bulldogs should find sure footing with PAWS. University Housing and Enterprise Information Technology Services have been working to fix Personal Access Wireless/Walkup System connection problems in the dorms. “This year we were able to address the areas where Internet connectivity might cut off. We have had some challenges in the last several years with Russell Hall, but we’re now working towards ubiquitous wireless,” said Gerry Kowalski, executive director of University Housing. Kowalski said Russell and Oglethorpe halls were the dorms that have had the most complaints in the past. “I’m not aware of any more recent kind of questions or concerns from students,” Kowalski said. “We’re happy to be able to offer the ubiquitous wireless options for students.” Matt Braun, manager of student technology support for EITS, said most connection problems in the dorms can be attributed to one of a few factors, including entering the wrong username or password, problems with wireless settings or software on personal computers or the malfunction of an access point that serves the area or local interference. Wireless routers and printers are also prohibited in order to avoid interference on the wireless frequencies.

GRAVE: Time for repairs uncertain ● FROM PAGE 1 “I will never understand what motivates a person or people to vandalize markers,” Duncan said. “My brain doesn’t go there.” Duncan returned to the University Monday morning from a two-week vacation that had her away from the Cemetery and its centuriesold markers. Duncan then noticed the ledger of Reverend Samuel Pressley, a former professor at the University who died in 1836. The ledger had been fractured into five different pieces — right along the edges of previous breaks and repair hairlines — and Duncan now fears the marker is beyond repair. The damage to the stone appears as if peoples had “really violently ripped apart the repairs and created a new piece of damage” across the face of the marble. In the July 9 police report, Duncan reportedly estimated the damage to this particular headstone to be close to $500. A “broad guess” for damage now actually nears $2,500, Duncan said. There were no marks on the tombstone “that would be consistent with tools being used to break the stone,” according to the July 9 report. Duncan said she believes at least two people

were involved in damaging the marker. “If it was one person, he or she must have been very strong, because the collective weight of those pieces is a good 500 pounds,” she said. Duncan’s estimation accounts for three areas of repair: the lifting and realigning of the base marble; the “proper preservation repair” of the fractured pieces; and protection for the top layer of marble that “for lack of a better word, exploded.” “Marble is delicate,” she said. “At a certain point, it can’t be repaired. Stone has pores, like the human body, and once you take the top layer off you expose the pores and it decays at a very rapid rate.” Duncan said the timeline for repairs is uncertain, as the stone of Rev. Pressley is again dependent on the Chicora Foundation, a non-profit heritage and preservation foundation that specializes in historical renovation. Until then, it’s her responsibility to maintain the safety of the headstones and other marble markers inside the Cemetery, a historical site included on the National Register of Historic Places. “There are campus specialty crews that help with things, but you know, it’s my job to take care of the place,” Duncan said in November.

Grady College more diverse than Univ., promotes to minorities

Classic City ‘willing to try new things,’ friendly to small business

Grady College has made efforts to attract minority students, and according to an article in Diverse Issues in Higher Education, it’s working. The article ranked the top 46 universities with black journalism graduates in 2011 — the University ranked 26 with 8 percent. Michelle Cook, associate provost and chief diversity officer for the office of institutional diversity, said the college is doing ‘pretty well,’ as 7.4 percent of all undergraduate students are black. “So Grady actually has a slightly higher percentage ...” she said. Joe Dennis, director of diversity and high school outreach for Grady, said the college COOK tries to promote the program to minorities. “There certainly has never been a racebased criteria for admission or any goals or benchmarks,” Dennis said. “But what we’ve done is we’ve tried to expose journalism and the Grady College at UGA to high schools and to high school students ...”

According to a study, Georgia ranks sixth in the nation in terms of friendliness toward small businesses. “I definitely think the results are encouraging. This is fertile ground for entrepreneurial activity,” Jeff Humphreys, director the Selig Center for Economic Growth and a professor at the Terry College of Business, said. But the results weren’t entirely positive. Georgia also ranked as the “slowest growing” place for small businesses in the South, and the state’s small businesses were ranked as the “least healthy” in the southern United States. “Since about the turn of the millennium, Georgia has been underperforming in terms of the national economy,” Humphreys said. Jennifer Janson, manager and co-owner HUMPHREYS of Jackson Street Books since 2004, said Athens residents had been receptive. “I think that people are willing to try new things in Athens. They don’t need glitzy retail ...” Janson said.

How to find a husband – is it satire?

Despite being harmful and now illegal, people still smoke synthetic marijuana For all those adherents to the “ignorance is bliss doctrine,” synthetic marijuana, commonly and hereafter referred to as spice, is now illegal in Georgia and many other states. Just for your information. In May 2012, Governor Nathan Deal signed SB 370, which classifies spice (JWH-018) as a Schedule I drug — up there with heroin, GHB and natural marijuana. Spice has now become a pointless substitute, even though many once considered it a viable alternative to smoking weed. Spice is a synthetic compound that mimics the effects of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana that yields the high. The compound is usually sprayed onto a burnable substance and then marketed in pouches as incense (c’mon manufacturers, who are you really fooling?). The only “edge” spice held over marijuana was that it was technically a legal substance — and that it didn’t show up on as many drug tests. But that didn’t mean it was safe. Users have reported feelings of nausea, paranoia and dizziness arising as a result of using the drug. The fact that people continue to smoke the substance is baffling. Governor Nathan Deal signed SB 370 into effect after reports surfaced of dangers resulting from using the drug. Psychosis and death are two things no one should want to risk given any set of circumstances. The only other “advantage” spice held over marijuana is that it didn’t show up on basic drug tests. There are two lines of pragmatic logic that stem from this fact. First, if chemists can dream up the drug, it’s highly probable that other chemists can dream up drug tests to detect that drug. And second, if spice usage is becoming such an epidemic even after the drug was illegalized, it’s exceedingly likely that said drug tests will become widespread amongst doctors, employers, etc. Your decisions are your own, and we as an editorial board can only provide the information necessary to make sure you make choices with all the facts — even the scary ones about death and psychosis — readily accessible. So if you are going to smoke an illicit substance, why would you smoke one that yields graver health effects and a worse high? Before the legal and medical studies came to light, spice may have been a craftier alternative to getting high on marijuana. But now, it’s just a imbecilic drug to imbibe in. — Jason Axelrod is a senior from Atlanta majoring in mass media arts

Last week Red & Black columnist Amber Estes wrote a piece on what is “most essential in securing our futures” – finding a husband. The column was first shared heavily on Facebook, and then went viral, finding itself on websites such as Newsweek and CNN. Hundreds of comments, tweets and referrals have followed, with people wanting to know: Is it real? Here's what the audience had to say about it: Seashell12: Wow, the responses to this are extremely disturbing. I am a (non man-hating) feminist who thought this was a funny piece of satire about some young people’s priorities, but the comments have revealed what a great piece of writing this is. People took this seriously!! I don't know you Amber, but I hope you're feeling really proud right now because you pushed a serious button and this reaction shows how true some of your comments are. Good job (and learn some subtlety, people!)


New Ga. abortion bill impinges on women’s rights R

epublicans are pushing back against abortion rights all over the country. Since their electoral victories in 2010, majorityRepublican state legislatures have been passing laws making it harder and harder for women to get medical abortions. Since HB 954 was signed into law by Governor Nathan Deal, Georgia has become one of the casualties in the nationwide erosion of abortion rights. Forty years ago, the landmark Roe v. Wade case established a constitutional right to an abortion up until the point of a fetus’s viability — when it can survive outside of the mother. This has historically been interpreted to be at least 24 weeks into the pregnancy. The new Georgia law, introduced by Athens’ own representative Doug McKillip, replaces the viability standard with a new benchmark — the point at which the fetus can feel pain, defined by the legislation as 20 weeks. Never mind the fact that this 20-week pain threshold is not supported by any evidence. Studies of prenatal sensory perception found that fetuses do not develop the neural connections needed to feel pain until at least 24 weeks. Never mind that the law does not grant any exceptions for cases of rape or incest.

Martin Hogan


Georgia’s “fetal pain” law is not the only one to pass recently, nor is it the worst anti-abortion legislation to pass this year. Mississippi just passed a law making the requirements for abortion providers so stringent that the state’s only abortion clinic will have to close. Michigan passed a law requiring that the remains from abortions and miscarriages be buried or cremated. The Georgia bill gained its own notoriety, however. While the bill was being debated, it originally required that even nonviable fetuses be carried to term. Auburn Representative Terry England made an emotional speech in which he argued that this was necessary, just as it is with animals. The representative said, “I’ve had the experience of delivering calves, dead and alive. Delivering pigs, dead or alive. It breaks our hearts to see those animals not make it.” This bizarre comparison of women to livestock made national headlines. And it showed just how clueless and insensitive these overwhelmingly male lawmakers are to the

women who will be affected by these laws. Cows and pigs are simply subject to how things ought to be — they have no choice in the matter. And apparently, that’s how life should be for Georgia women as well. At the end of that debate, Democratic congresswomen walked out in protest. Additionally, they proposed another bill that would ban vasectomies in response. If the Georgia legislature is dictating what women can do with their bodies, then it should be able to do the very same thing to men. That, better than anything else, shows how wrong and skewed these laws are. Abortion rights are critically important women’s rights, as they allow women autonomy over the course of their lives. On the most basic of levels, they allow women control over their own bodies. Georgia women (as well as women in general) deserve a government that won’t trample so heedlessly over their basic rights.

CoreyJF: The best thing about this article: of the outraged female commenters foolish enough to take this article seriously would probably be better off looking for that MRS degree. sroseglisson: While her advice may yield the desired results, eventually the facade she recommends building will crack and the relationship will implode. Ms. Estes should be ashamed. Surely her education is worth more? GAgrad: Although not the most wellwritten, this article is hilarious. I appreciate the sarcasm. Satire does not have to be thrown in your face to work. PocketFullOfHawthornes: I hope this works for me too! I'm going to go wait outside of Terry for a golden haired muscular homosexual lawyer to come pick me up and sweep me away from all of this real world nonsense. Who needs a job? I got me a hunk

Opinion Meter: The ups and downs in the week that was

beating the heat with creativity: Despite

the record-high temperatures and lessthan-awesome weather, orientation leaders have brainstomed cooler, creative ways to share the University experience with incoming freshman. One OL said he leads students on a walk through North Campus via the Tate mural. All together now: “Aww.”

Pats for paws: Thank goodness we have you, PAWS. With new improvements to your security provisions and firewall protection, some students may be dismayed that Limewire downloads and other sketchy activity is limited — but in the grand scheme of things, PAWS, our relationship is so much bigger than that.

Where are they now: Georgia has had a

Mailbox Telling people where cheap drinks are is not news


UGA, No. 8 party school compiled a list of the top “party schools of the last decade.” UGA was No. 8, behind University of Colorado and the top-ranked University of Florida. The article notes UGA is

famous for the Georgia-Florida games known as the “world’s largest cocktail party.” The Red and Black asked students for their reactions — Compiled by Daniel Suddes

“I think it’s a good thing that we fell. I don’t think we should be known for that. It’s probably caused by people being more careful about reporting their parties.”

“Through my classes, I’ve learned that most of that research is based on real statistics. So I would say the ranking is not based on anything.”

“It’s a good thing, and its caused by an influx of more students with less money to spare.”

“I don’t party, so I don’t know how that works. But it doesn’t have to do with academics, so I don’t think it matters.”

Devoting a whole page in last week's print edition to local bars' drinks specials showed mis-guided editorial judgment. It simply encourages excessive consumption of alcohol when your news pages report students with DUIs and public urination arrests. You need to re-think your editorial philosophy and ethics. Where to get cheap drinks is NOT news! You can do better than that. JOHN ENGLISH Professor Emeritus Athens

Reprinting football player’s post was wrong You should be ashamed of yourselves for printing the recourse of Cornelius Washington's post.

Prevalence of fake IDs in Athens is alarming My wife and I have purchased a townhouse near the University and will be relocated from N.J. to Athens within the next few months. I've been reading The Red and Black to get a sense of what's going on at UGA. It makes for good reading: I've been amused by the stories of the drunken students. Students driving the wrong way on one way streets, colliding with other cars in parking lots, consuming beer in public, public intoxication. All very humorous (until it isn't one day). The pandemic use of false IDs is alarming to me. I'm wondering if there shouldn't be a closer working relationship between police and business. Perhaps, the largest bars should be able to actually scan the bar codes on the IDs. From what I understand, the false IDs don't scan very well. This might cut down on beer sales, but would greatly improve public safety. I also wonder why the smart students of UG consistently in the stories present their false IDs to the arresting officers. The gig is up, just come clean, use your actually ID – and save yourself extra criminal charges.

It should be expanded to more teams

WHAT YOU HAD TO SAY: “It is disappointing to see how many people have been deceived by the new “playoff.” The new plan is still based on the same fallacies that plagued the original version because it was created by and for the same people. The four team version of the Beauty Contest Subjectivity is no playoff. It is an invitational tournament with the contestants selected subjectively.” “The new college football playoff system should just be called the SEC Invitational.” “It's about time. I’m very excited for a college football playoff. A four team playoff will serve as a much better way to find the nation's best team and will better validate that champion “Scientists found the God particle that answers fundamental questions abt universe. Yes, it contains perfect college football playoff system.”

BEAT THE HEAT — Now Showing! ‘To Rome with Love’ The latest Woody Allen film takes its audience to a city of fountains: Rome. Four different plots, each with their own set of characters, consistently weave romantic, satirical comedy into the director's latest. A newlywed, Italian couple visits Rome to meet the husband’s extended family, but the husband pretends that a call girl is his fiancé while his lost wife joins an Italian movie star. A famous American architect (Alec Baldwin) runs into young, admiring student-architect (Jesse Eisenberg). Monica, an unemployed, aspiring actress, seduces Eisenberg with false dreams. An ordinary businessman randomly becomes the paparazzi and the media’s craze. A stereotypical Americangirl-falls-in-love-with-handsomeItalian story creates many comic moments through the cultural differences and beliefs of the girl’s quirky parents and the man’s Italian parents. The movie steps light-heartedly in life’s ironies.

This dynamic movie pleases the quick-witted and curious through the ways its varied cast of characters handle themselves in strange, uncontrollable circumstances. — Kat Drerup

‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’

BY KELLIE REHN The Red & Black A University student turns a crafty past time into a business. Erika Arnold, a senior from Atlanta, majoring in magazines, minoring in philosophy, makes customized, high-waisted jean shorts. She started her own business, Erika Arnold Designs, in April, using Facebook to advertise and expand her clientele. “I was shocked to see the response I got,” said Arnold, designer. “I started selling to my friends, then sorority girls, then the University and now I ship everywhere in the United States from California to Michigan to Maryland.” It all started in the dead-heat of the University’s football season. Arnold said it was too hot and uncomfortable for dresses and decided to make trendy jean shorts for her and some friends. She viewed many high-waisted jean shorts on websites such as Urban Outfitters and Etsy, but in her opinion, they were overpriced and easily made. “I wear high-waisted shorts myself because its an outfit that feels comfortable on my body while also being a stylish look,” Arnold said. “I feel like it is a flattering style for most people.” After experimenting with the craft and making a few for her friends, Arnold decided to start selling her shorts, handcrafting every single pair completely on her own. Albums of her designs with prices ranging from $30.00 to $48.00, depending on the alterations or additions, show her talent and ideas on her business’ Facebook page. Arnold describes that her customer base stands between the ages of 17-and 28-years-old and sees the girl buying her shorts as trendy, classic and someone who hangs out at music festivals, concerts or appreciates doing things outside. “The shorts were amazing, all different colors, accessories and sizes,” said Ansley Williams, a recent customer. “She really has a talent for making a unique fashion piece!” To begin the process, customers message their waist size and request what style that they want to her Facebook page. For local customers, Arnold welcomes them to her apartment, where she also makes the shorts, to try on

Erika Arnold's artistic gene runs in the family. Her mother and sister shared a booth during AthFest, selling their hand-crafted works. Courtesy of Erika Arnold sample sizes. Arnold travels to thrift stores and consignment shops in search of the customer’s size. After cutting the jeans into shorts, she studs, frays, dyes, bleaches, distresses or alters them according to her customers’ desires. After completing each pair to satisfy her artistic opinion, she ships it to the customer. Her friends help with tagging and organization, but Arnold said that she has thought about hiring interns, considering the growth of the business. Arnold admits to always possessing an “artistic flare,” but realizes an artistic gene runs in her family. Dorita Arnold, her mother, makes her own line of luxury dog collars called Zha Zha Collars. Alli Arnold, her sister, creates handcrafted vintage jewelry called Alli Marcelle. At this year’s AthFest, Erika shared a booth with her mother and sister. For now, Arnold says her business is a great summer job. She feels unsure about where she wants to take it, but knows that she wants to work for someone else. “You don’t know how much really goes into running your own business,” Arnold said. “Customer service is a huge responsibility, and I am the type of person who always wants my customers to be satisfied. For that reason, I would like to have a career working for a company instead of running a business myself.”

The annual concerts take place outdoors, where audiences populate the Sunflower Concert Series summer after summer. Courtesy of State Botanical Gardens

Garden concert series grows In spite of the heat, the Sunflower Concert Series isn’t wilting. Now in its 12th year, the series — hosted by the State Botanical Garden — continues to bring together musicians, plants, music and plant lovers. Moreover, it’s growing. First planted as part of a larger plan to engage the public, William Tonks, who oversees public service and outreach at the Garden, said the series was his seeing an opportunity where there was none. “All the people I see at the 40 Watt don’t go to the Gardens and everyone who goes to the Gardens doesn’t go the 40 Watt,” Tonks said. “And I thought, ‘How can I fix that?’” The solution: concerts, placed in the shade of a weekday — Tuesdays, not late into the evening and when most musicians are in town between gigs — and designed to attract different groups for different reasons, together. One thing never changes: Grogus

is an annual staple, the benefit of what Tonks called the city’s “Zumba mania.” Consistency is not constant elsewhere: the threat of rain lingers over each month’s concert — broken only by a morning-of weather report. Ambience is a key factor: it’s a part of what makes the series different and it’s part of what’s appealing to regular Garden-goers — it’s not quite the “scary 40 Watt” some people may usually avoid, Tonks said. With the arrival of a new director last year, a jazz concert was added in September. Although it broke no attendance records, 150 peopleattended a “perfect early fall night” of Arvin Scott’s music. The stars were coming out, Tonks said, and the heat disappeared. — Adam Carlson

Retirement is maybe the next outsourced commodity. Just check out “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” for proof, when seven English persons move to Jaipur, India. One of the overarching themes is best recalled through James A. Michener, who wrote, “If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home.” While most of the characters mature considerably, all hit a few rough patches before learning to love, laugh and truly, live. The cinematography and music created a vibrant picture of Jaipur, although moments of the film seemed slightly too optimistic. Based on Deborah Moggach’s “These Foolish Things,” Moggach and director John Madden constructed an interesting irony through each character, whose age in years did not equal his or her equivalent in wisdom or compassion. The actors and actresses beautifully captured British reserve as they adjusted to the heat, color and flavor of India.

As tensions build up seeming to lead to disappointment, the plot or character whisks it back, creating chuckles. Everyone finds their home through the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. — Nat Fort

‘Moonrise Kingdom’ Wes Anderson shows off a new self in his “Moonrise Kingdom,” a self both updated and revamped. Bob Balaban comes first, carrying on a voiceover tradition, also including Alec Baldwin. We, he tells us, are on New Penzance Island in 1965 with a storm approaching “in three days’ time.” Sam — the film’s biggest, broadest mistake and central hinge — portrays a solipsistic romantic who turns every wounded-ego overture into the signs of a fragile emotional interior. I didn’t buy it, and I’m not sure that most audiences will either. It’s a shame, because newAnderson sustains the major majority of “Moonrise Kingdom” with a gorgeous sense of Romantic (capital-“R”) comedy. Suzy and Sam fall in love, a ridiculousness which doesn’t stand much scrutiny ... Amid the gathering blackness and rising floodwaters,

“Moonrise Kingdom” is too chipper to cop to ennui. The sky breaks open — but no one drowns. — Adam Carlson

‘Brave’ The newest animated blockbuster does not parallel “Up,” “Wall-E” or “Cars.” While viewers don’t cry or howl at the film’s sweetness and cuteness, “Brave” represents a true family film. No love scenes. No borderline risqué jokes. No sophisticated plot lines. “Brave” offers a beautifullytold, gorgeously-animated story of mother-daughter relations and the inherent drama of family dynamics. A magical plot and quirky Scottish touch augment the movie’s focus. But the intricate bildungsroman constructed on the film’s basic story line make “Brave” a must-see movie of the summer. Prepare to be besotted by the glory of Pixar animation — its revelry in colorfully enhanced close-ups of tangled ginger manes and sweeping shots of grassy highlands. Its soundtrack and hilarious moments pluck an audience’s heartstrings. With her wild knot of hair and trill-like brogue, Merida worms into the heart of every Disney princess wannabe.

As a 21-year-old woman, I love Merida for the same reason that I loved Ariel as a 6-year-old. Independence — so easily craved, so scarcely obtained. But one of the best things is to see a girl your age get it. — Julia Carpenter

No Cracker, no problem Johnny Hickman produces second solo CD BY ADAM CARLSON The Red & Black Johnny Hickman is solo again. Seven years after his last solo album, the Cracker collaborator steps out with “Tilting,” released last week. Hickman spoke about the years-long gap, the process of writing and what has been his evolution from band member to solo performer. “Titling” is that first step in re-introducing himself as a solo performer. Highlights from the conversation: On “Tilting”: “Well, with the new album “Tilting,” it was recorded over the past year, in between Cracker tours and so forth and I feel pretty good since my last solo record … “Palmhenge,” which came out in 2005. This was probably the most personal record, just directly — a good part of it might as well be pages out of my diary. I just didn’t hold back on anything, I’m sort of at that point in life; I call it my “mid-life crisis record” but it’s not a crisis really, it’s more reflective and a little pissed off, being in the middle of life and the halfway point and at both times sort of celebrating that and fighting it at the same time.” On its sound, vs. Cracker: “This record has a little bit of everything I do.” On writing: “When it started, I wanted more lyrics than I did music ... Obviously I’m a guitar player in Cracker, so they’re going to want some guitar, and that’s fine ... ”

But there’s another side of me that grew up listening to soul music and that’s become a very big part of me, too ... I’m a big fan of Bob Dylan and John Prine ... They don’t have like an instrument ... I love that and that’s a big part of me, too. I actually had a lot of lyrics first this time, which is actually kind of backwards … Whereas this time, actually, I really had a lot of stories, I had enough lyrics for the songs from the last couple of years. I just really had a lot to say. On what he’s learned from collaboration: “Well, David Lowery is one of the best songwriters of his generation, in my opinion. He’s fantastic … And I’ve learned a lot from him over the years and the way he operates is, he creates characters in his songs and he lets the characters develop their own personalities and speak if they want to talk and a lot of my favorite songwriters do that as well — Randy Newman, Bob Dylan — I think David’s sort of in that group, later generation, but he’s not afraid to be a very complex individual or a very confused individual in a song or a very pissed-off individual or a very sharp individual or a very stupid individual. We do that with Cracker songs a lot.”

Athens’ hidden gems

))) hiddengems

Editor’s note: For many in this college town, downtown packs nightlife and entertainment into 12 or so square blocks. Luckily, this stretch of shops, bars and restaurants holds more than meets the eye. Between the Arch and the Georgia Theatre, lie a few uncovered gems of Athens. — Compiled by Mackenzie Lee



NATIVE AMERICA GALLERY Usually, it's simple to figure out where to search for a certain item or gift — a string of adorable clothing shops, vintage stores and jewelry shops make the list. But some shops get passed by, not because of location or brand presence, but lack of attention. One of these places is the Native America Gallery on East Clayton Street, almost at the corner of College Avenue. The first time that I was coerced into taking a look around, I was floored. Time flies while visiting the store. It carries traditional Native American gifts and an unexpected, expansive variety of local jewelry and gifts. After looking through all the jewelry, the bead and DIY jewelry corner grabs even more attention. The back of the store has an entirely separate feel, offering top-of-the-line moccasins and some of the most hilarious birthday cards that I’ve seen to date. Undoubtedly, it's served as a staple for years, and is firmly on the top of my list of favorite Athens stores.

TREPPENHAUS For a night out with friends or a nightcap, stop by Treppenhaus for your next drink. Located on College Avenue, this German-style “beer garden” is easily missed as it is snuggled between coffee powerhouse Starbucks and popular Athens coffee shop Walker’s Coffee and Pub. Despite boasting a reasonably traditional college atmosphere, the two-story bar isn’t the place to push through crowds or receive drinks in plastic cups. Ryan Monahan, local beer connoisseur, values the bar for its “relaxed upstairs environment and

quality German beers.” Treppenhaus prides itself on its vast beer selection and is known for their “giant steins of beer” — literally a full liter of any beer on tap. After filling your stein, stroll up to the one-of-a-kind fur room. Its cozy atmosphere makes it perfect for spending time with close friends with a fun change of scenery. In the dynamic and constantly changing Classic City, it becomes difficult to keep abreast of new shops, bars and restaurants, and even more difficult to remember old favorites. With the right tools, a few recommendations and a little searching, discovering a new favorite spot is easier than one thinks.

"Frightened," Easter Island's latest release, already gains popularity. COURTESY OF EASTER ISLAND, BY PAIGE MAITLAND

After several remasterings, Easter Island releases new CD One year and another album later. Easter Island compiled its first full-length album, “Frightenend” roughly a year after its five-track “Better Things.” “It got a ton of downloads,” said Patrick Ferguson, drums. “Frightened” posted to along with its first album. “This is our first time that we’ve done ‘name-yourown-price,’” said Nate Thompson, vocals and guitar, “and we see people paying more than we guessed.” The album’s successful launch relfects the work its members put into its writing and recording. “It came so frighteningly natural,” Thompson said. “I felt it was in the recording process where there was friction. We remastered the record eight times. That was the most strenuous part.” Although recording its new album involved tremendous effort, the band feels that its creation is complete. “We’re very thankful that we’ve zeroed on everything and it sonically fits together for this record,” said Asher Payne, vocals. Considering the band’s dedication to crafting a polished work, it also strives to portray life experience — lyrically and musically. “We’re just trying to make really good music,” Payne said. “In the end, we’re not really lost, but we don’t fit in with the cultural paradigms that we grew up with. Our music is very communal. We want our music to be like a dialogue.” Ferguson described the younger band members’ lyrics as ‘life affirming,’ without sounding light. “We’ve made two amazing records and we’re still friends,” Ferguson said. — Nat Fort

The usual upscale fare of Athens can exhaust even the most avid diners. For a more unique dining experience, step into The Branded Butcher, a restaurant that emphasizes handcrafted charcuterie. Owner and manager John Brantley encourages people to “break from the traditional dining process,” he said. “With our charcuterie menu it’s not unusual for tables to get four courses and never order a ‘main’ dish.” Described as “not your typical cookie cutter Athens restaurant” by a visitor, this small, intimate restaurant, located directly to the right of the Georgia Theatre, knows the value of farm to table — the idea that fresh, local and organic foods create the most savory experience. The Branded Butcher’s chef Matt Palmerlee makes diners savor and anticipate every rich bite. Customers wonder what unexpected, yet perfectly matched, flavors will erupt. Its concise, well-planned menu paired with knowledgeable staff ensures that its visitors will pick something they love. The restaurant also features a bar, where top shelf cocktails create a matching aperitif to any delicious dish. “Trust me, you’ll be hard pressed to find another menu with a grass-fed filet and a housemade corndog on it — that’s the experience we want for our guests,” Brantley said.

Bulldog tennis players head to BB&T Atlanta Open BY NICHOLAS FOURIEZOS The Red & Black It’s a Tuesday morning, before noon, and Atlantic Station is caught in an awkward hush. Nothing is going on yet, but on Saturday thousands willgather for the BB&T Atlanta Open. “We are excited to partner with the Atlanta ATP World Tour event and look forward to supporting tennis in Atlanta for years to come,” said Brant Standridge, regional president of BB&T North Atlanta region, back at the event’s new launch in April. “This is a significant event for Midtown Atlanta, and with our regional headquarters in Atlantic Station, we are ideally suited to participate in a marquis attraction for the area.” The vibrant blue stands, vacant now, will be filled to their 3,600-seat capacity as professional players from all around the world gather in Atlanta. And amidst that professional atmosphere, there will be three Bulldogs entrenched in the thick of it — former Bulldogs Ignacio Taboada and John Isner, and current Bulldog sophomore Nathan Pasha. “Obviously I’m super pumped up just to be around those guys, just to experience this tournament for a week,” Taboada said. Though he won’t be taking part in the singles draw, Taboada and Georgia Tech graduate Kevin King were awarded wild-card status to the doubles main draw. Pasha was awarded a spot in the singles qualifying draw, and grew up in the inner-city Atlanta area. “Even Kevin, he grew up in Atlanta too,” Taboada said. “The three of us are all highlevel tennis players and are from Atlanta, so to be able to compete in such a big tournament in Atlanta is unbelievable.” The doubles tournament is something that King is familiar with, since he and former Bulldog Drake Bernstein rode that same wild-card positioning to an unlikely upset win in the first round of last year’s tournament. “We’re going to go in with confidence,” Taboada said. “Obviously the players are some of the best in the world, so you’ve got to respect your opponents. But seeing what Drake was able to do, I think that pumps us up even more.” That confidence will be understated, though, since Taboada said he is more focused on enjoying the event then on worrying about



BB&T ATLANTA OPEN SCHEDULE Qualifying Rounds: Saturday, July 14 to Monday, July 16 Singles Main Draw: Monday, July 16 to Sunday, July 22 Doubles Main Draw : Monday, July 16 to Sunday, July 22 advancing. “It’s more just to enjoy the experience,” Taboada said. “I probably won’t be able to experience too much of an event like this for the rest of my life. I plan on going to practice tomorrow with King [for the first time], but we both know each other, been playing against each other here in Atlanta since we were 12.” Having been awarded a berth in the singles qualifying round, Pasha is in a position that most amateurs dream of — especially for a player who just finished his freshman season. Taboada said that there was no doubt that his former teammate deserved a spot in the tournament. “One thing I know for sure is he deserves the position,” Taboada said. “He stepped up as a freshman and showed he can play big tennis and play with anyone.” The final Bulldog in the tournament will be Isner, a four-time All-American while at Georgia, who reached as high as 10th in the international rankings this past spring. Isner is familiar with the event, after having made the championship round twice in the last two years (losing both times to American player Mardy Fish). But he doesn't know the venue. The tournament only recently moved to Atlantic Station, after having been hosted by the Racquet Club of the South the year before.

Crowell to Alabama State, hires lawyer Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell will leave the University of Georgia following his dismissal from the football team Friday, and despite early reports showing he wasn’t certain where he was going next, he has enrolled at Alabama State and plans on playing football in the fall. UGAsports reported Alabama State was Crowell’s new home, but ESPN reported Thursday that according to his mother Debbie, he was still weighing his options. At Alabama State he will be eligible to play for next season, since Alabama State is a member of the Football

Championship Subdivision. Crowell’s enrollment at Alabama State gives time to settle as he decides how to face the charges placed against him — two felony counts, one for possession of a weapon in a school zone and another for altered identifiCROWELL cation mark, and a misdemeanor count of possession/carrying a concealed weapon. His first decision has been to hire nationally-known criminal

defense lawyer Steve Sadow, who is based out of Atlanta and has represented rapper T.I. and Joseph Sweeting, who was a codefendant in the 2000 double murder case involving Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. Sadow also has a Georgia connection, after having defended former basketball player Tony Cole. — Nicholas Fouriezos

MEDIA: Linebacker apologizes for post

Former Georgia athletic director Vince Dooley helped bring coach Mark Richt to Athens, thinks Bulldogs better off without TB Isaiah Crowell. EVAN STICHLER/Staff

Dooley approves of Crowell departure

Dismissal a ‘bad apple type thing’ Former Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell’s dismissal and transfer may prove to be the “best thing to happen” to the team, former Georgia head coach and athletic director Vince Dooley told the Atlanta JournalConstitution. “It was a bad-apple type thing, if you ask me,” Dooley told the paper. With Crowell’s negative influence gone from the locker room, Dooley said, the Bulldogs will be a much more cohesive — and successful — team in 2012. “Historically when things like this have happened in the past, they tend to have a unifying effect on teams,” he said. “They go on to have an even better season than they were predicted to have.” Most observers have predicted Georgia as the favorite to win the SEC East for the second year in a row, but not to win the championship after facing Alabama or a rematch with LSU. But Alabama State head coach Reggie Barlow, where Crowell has transferred, agrees with Dooley’s prediction. He pointed out to the AJC that the last three times an SEC team sent him a high-profile player, that

team — Florida followed by Auburn and Alabama — won a national championship the following season. Dooley also cited the example of a player with a similar effect on the locker room that left before the 1959 season. Dooley couldn’t recall the player’s name in his interview with the AJC, but the paper determined it was most likely center/linebacker David Lloyd, who went to the NFL as a junior. The Bulldogs were distressed by Lloyd’s departure, but their team actually rallied to win the SEC Championship that season. “When he decided to leave, Coach [Wally] Butts went into a depression; he knew he had lost his best athlete,” Dooley said. “But as it turned out it unified the team.” Dooley also couldn’t help but share some football wisdom regarding how best to use Crowell. Because Crowell tended to run out of energy later in the game, Dooley said he would have used him exclusively in the second half. “Herschel [Walker] got stronger in the fourth; this guy got weaker. So I would’ve waited until the second half to play him,” Dooley said.

● FROM PAGE 1 “The certainty of what people have to understand — people of all ages — [is that] you are seeing prominent professional athletes and people like that, probably making some decisions that they might regret,” Mcgarity said. Regret came quickly for Washington, who posted an apology soon after his message became viral. “My biggest regret about the whole thing is that it has caused so much disruption amongst the team,” Washington said as part of his apology. “I forgot for a minute that I am here to get an education and play football and that pretty much is the extent of my responsibilities ... I would like to ask all the fans and supporters out there to help us with this by letting it go also.” The role the University should have in restricting student-athlete’s access to social media remains unclear. “Each head coach basically sets the policy for his team. There is nothing in writing or any specific guidelines [from the department],” McGarity said. “We feel like it is freedom of speech, and if a youngster wants to do it, and do it from a personal standpoint, that’s fine.” Georgia tennis coach Manuel Diaz stresses the importance of proper social media use. “[The players] have a big responsibility and they represent more than just themselves,” Diaz said. “They have to be held accountable for it. It’s just part of it — they have to be responsible. To whom much is given, much is expected.” The consequences of posting inappropriate material may lead to alienation of a student, and ultimately, a negative reflection on the University — which is when the administration may step in. “When it crosses the line to things that are derogatory in nature or not in good taste, then we would meet with that student and counsel them,” McGarity said. And given time, some athletes come to the realization that what they post matters — as Washington did with his apology. It is the administration’s hope that theses cases may serve as lessons to the student-athletes involved. “If you read Cornelius’ response, it should be a closed matter,” McGarity said. “Bottom line is that things like that happen and it’s all about how you react to it and I think that he did a great job responding to it.”

In the aftermath of Isaiah Crowell’s arrest and subsequent dismissal from the team, teammate Cornelius Washington launched himself back into the spotlight with a Facebook rant toward fairweather fans. Washington has since apologized for the post: “all think you know so much, but in reality you know nothing. You don’t know what we come from, you don’t know our struggles, all you know is the number on our jersies. 99% of you don’t give a crap about us outside of football,” Washington posted on Facebook. “When we’re doing well you’re all in our faces, when things get tough and we need encouragement you’re nowhere to be found.

FIELD: Grounds crew ‘having fun’ ● FROM PAGE 1

There is a lot that goes into preparing the hedges for Saturdays, and the Georgia grounds crew of at least 11 employees is responsible for over 30 acres of turf. EVAN STICHLER/Staff

“Then we’ll watch ‘em play the game, and once we get done, it’s time for us to clean that crap up,” Pauley said. Football games are an involved process for Pauley’s crew. But with the crush of events occurring in the spring, particularly over 100 baseball and softball games on campus last semester, he believes he faces a more difficult challenge in that season. “Football you come in one time, that Saturday. And that’s maintenance, getting that game on, because everything else is already done….

But baseball, softball, is you come in that morning, and that’s all you work on, that game…. Sometimes we don’t leave until about 2:00 in the morning,” Pauley said. “The spring seasons are always tougher on us than the football season.” The grounds crew and their partners in facility maintenance are an integral part of the Athletic Association and its events. “The aesthetics and the cleanliness and the manner in which our facilities and grounds are maintained yearround are both critical and essential. Those play a large

part in the overall image we want to portray,” athletic director Greg McGarity wrote in an email. “People want to be in a well-maintained and clean environment and having a staff that’s aware and trained to those practices speaks well for the University and our athletic program.” As for Pauley, he believes he’s in the right place. “This is what I was born to do, paid to do all my life, is grow the grass,” he said. “So I’m having fun.”

Linebacker plans transfer, changes decision Georgia head football coach Mark Richt announced Thursday that redshirt sophomore inside linebacker Brandon Burrows would be transferring. Burrows’ decision to transfer was an effort to seek an opportunity for increased playing time. However, less than a week after announcing his decision to transfer, Brandon Burrows BURROWS changed his mind and will again be returning to the Bulldogs. Burrows was granted reinstatement on Monday. “I’m actually on my way back to Athens right now,” Burrows said, according to an AJC report. “I’ve just been thinking about it and praying about it a lot.” — Benjamin Wolk
